Maria Rynd (married Pedro Jose Guerra, 1840, London)

Classification: Query
Surnames: Rynd, Guerra, Ballivian, Grimwood
Searching for info about my great-great grandmother:

Maria Rynd
b. ????, possibly County Meath, Ireland
m. 1840 May 16, London, to Pedro Jose Guerra
d. ????, probably Bolivia

According to a record of Maria's marriage (*) she was the daughter of Goodlatte Rynd, who was mortally wounded in the battle of Salamanca (1812 July). No mention therein of her mother, although I received an unsubstantiated contribution whereby the name of Maria's mother may have been Henriette or Henrietta Montgomery.

According to Burke's, Goodlatte Rynd did not marry.

At the time of their marriage, Maria's husband was Bolivian Consul in Paris. I have no idea how or where they met.

My great-grandfather, their only known son, was born c. 1847 in La Paz, Bolivia. He married Carmen Ballivian (maternal surname: Grimwood).
